Looks like someone had a score to settle.
(Reuters) – A Michigan man whose drug-related prison sentence was commuted by former President Barack Obama was shot dead this week at a federal halfway house, according to local media reports.
Demarlon Thomas, 31, was shot and killed on Monday night by a man with an assault-style rifle in Saginaw, Michigan, around 100 miles (160 km) northwest of Detroit, according to local CBS affiliate WNEM.
A spokesman for the Michigan State Police did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Reuters.
Two masked men with assault-style rifles entered the facility where around two dozen people were staying, Michigan State Police Lt. David Kaiser told local news website MLive.com.
“One person watched over a group of them while another subject located the victim and executed him,” Kaiser said, according to the website. “They were looking for this person.”
